Sidney Rice misses practice again, fantasy value steady for Week 16

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee) was held out of practice again on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice was held out of practice again on Thursday because of a knee injury. Rice also missed two days of practice last week because of a bruised foot but was able to play against the Buffalo Bills.

Rice had 76 yards on four catches in Week 15 against Buffalo. The Seahawks will face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Beat writers haven't written much about Rice's injury and nothing suggests he's going to miss Week 16. The bigger concern was last week when he was in a walking boot but Rice still managed to play.

Rice has been a steady performer this season for fantasy owners but expectations should be tempered for Week 16 because of a tough matchup against the 49ers. Rice is a No. 3 fantasy wide receiver or flex play this weekend.
